Intellectual Property

IP Cores for ST 2022-1/2/5/6/7, ST 2110, and ST 2059


Video over IP Networks

Macnica has been developing intellectual property to support the shift from Serial Digital Interface (SDI) to Internet Protocol (IP) based infrastructures since 2011. We successfully demonstrated the first implementation of our SMPTE ST 2022-1/2/5/6 intellectual property at NAB in 2012. We continue to develop highly flexible intellectual property that enables high channel count across multiple types of channels and a mix of standards in support of the Video over IP migration.

  • Support for multiple channels of video, audio, and metadata
  • Protocols can be configured on a per-channel basis (mix ST 2110, ST 2022-6)
  • ST 2059-1/2 time synchronization
  • Integration with SDI interface
  • Clock recovery from video stream or external sync signal

*Macnica’s patented clock recovery methodology allows the video clock to be derived from the packet stream over a wide range of network jitter conditions.

Supported Standards:
  • ST 2110-10 (Timing)
  • ST 2110-20 (Video Packetization)
  • ST 2110-21 (Narrow Sender Traffic Shaping for Uncompressed Video)
  • ST 2110-30 (Audio Packetization)
  • ST 2110-40 (Metadata Packetization)
  • ST 2022-2/6 (1G and 10G Packetization of SDI Streams)
  • ST 2022-1/5 (1G and 10G FEC)
  • ST 2022-6 (Transport of High Bit Rate Media Signals over IP Networks)
  • ST 2022-7 (Seamless Protection Switching)
  • ST 2022-8 (SMPTE ST 2022-6 as an essence format within the SVIP system of ST 2110-10)
  • ST 2059-1/2 (Time Synchronization)
  • NMOS IS-04 (Discovery and Registration)
  • NMOS IS-05 (Connection Management)

Macnica’s suite of Video over IP Intellectual Property implements the most up-to-date standards associated with live video transport over IP networks through active participation in the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers (SMPTE), Video Services Forum (VSF), Joint Task Force on Networked Media (JT-NM), Alliance for IP Media Solutions (AIMS), and Advanced Media Workflow Association (AMWA) organizations.
